DIY – Calendar Wall Art

As I mentioned, putting things on the wall has been a bit intimidating this early on in the process.  But!  I did make one minor (huge) change in our kitchen.  What was once a blank wall with a random map thrown on it, is now a wall of… well, two of our favorite things: food and beer.  Remember this little gift guide?  I ended up using it for my own boyf last year and purchased this Red Cruiser calendar, which ended up being quite a hit.  However, once a year is over, what’s the use?  Basically calendars are good for nothing upon expiration.  Except… a gallery wall!  Watch and learn my friends…

Here is what the calendar looked like before…

Too cute to get rid of right?

So trim the numbers and days off (I actually kept the month and descriptions)…
